Amongst other interesting local reports from last night's Geelong Field Naturalists' meeting was a record of 2 Crested Pigeons at Marshall (southern outskirts of Geelong) on 16 October. Local observers have reported this species approaching Geelong from the northwest over the last year or so, but this is the first confirmation of them (as far as I know) on the south side of Geelong. Report from Ray Beckworth.

The other extraordinary record was from Jeff Horoch of 60 or more Black-faced Cuckoo-Shrikes flying along Bell's Beach (west of Torquay) on 5 October.
